"A truly lovely book, gentle and humorous, about a couple having to deal with the hard stuff life can throw at you and finding a way through." -Reedsy Discovery
In Broken Pieces of God David B. Seaburn returns to the domestic arena to explore the complex and extraordinary lives of an ordinary American couple, Eddy and Gayle Kimes. Eddy, a supervisor for a cable company, loses his job. Gayle, a tax accountant, is recently diagnosed with ovarian cancer. Unemployment, failed chemotherapy, and no insurance bring them to life's precipice. Desperate, Eddy turns to a statue of Jesus, seeking a miracle, while Gayle dives deeper into a scheme she has been concocting for twenty-five years.
In the meantime, their adult offspring, Rich and Sandy, grapple with the aftershock of a tragic incident that has shadowed their lives since high school. What will happen when their secret is revealed?
At the eleventh hour, Gayle re-enters treatment and the family pulls together. Will it be too late?
This is a story of resilience in the face of uncertainty, hope in the midst of darkness, and family ties strengthened by life's vicissitudes.
